Hit A Bomb Will Not Shuttle Tim Rowe | 4 months ago

Spendthrift Farm has announced that Hit A Bomb (War Front) will not shuttle to Australia in 2017 and instead shuttle to South America. >> More

“We did not anticipate such strong late interest in shuttling Hit It a Bomb, and an unforeseen opportunity came about that was too good to turn down,” said B. Wayne Hughes, owner of Spendthrift.

“It was a difficult business decision to send him to South America, and we regret any confusion this may cause.

“I want to make it clear that we will continue to be committed to bolstering our stallion operation at Spendthrift Australia.

“The first key to having mutual success for Spendthrift, the stallion, and the breeder is to make sure we are doing our job by having the right horses in the right places. I believe we will have a lot of the right horses coming to Spendthrift Australia in the future.”

Spendthrift Australia has announced Swear (Redoute's Choice), new for 2017 as a participant in the farm’s renowned “Share The Upside” program. The Victoria-based operation will also stand Warrior’s Reward (Medaglia d'Oro), Jimmy Creed (Distorted Humor) and Hampton Court (Redoute's Choice).

Holler To Northwood Park Lydia Symonds | 8 months ago

>> More

Darley has this morning announced that Group One-winning sprinter Holler (Commands) will stand at Northwood Park in Victoria in 2017 with a limited number of breeding rights to be offered.

Trained by John O’Shea, the son of Commands (Danehill) raced 14 times for four victories and five placings with his best result coming in last season’s Canterbury Stakes (Gr 1, 1300m).

A winner on debut over 1100 metres at Randwick in January 2015, Holler ran third in the Run To The Rose (Gr 2, 1200m) behind Exosphere (Lonhro) at his third start with his first stakes victory coming in the Telstra Phonewords Stakes (Gr 3, 1200m) at Moonee Valley in October 2015.

Winner of the Australia Stakes (Gr 2, 1200m) back at Moonee Valley last January, his Group One victory came two months later when he defeated First Seal (Fastnet Rock) in the Canterbury Stakes. This was followed up just under three weeks later with a second in the William Reid Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m) to Flamberge (Exceed And Excel).

“Holler is a horse we are very proud of. He is a homebred who became a weight-for-age winner at the highest level in the Godolphin blue,” said Alastair Pulford, head of sales for Darley stallions in Australia.

New Syndication Company Launched Tim Rowe | 8 months ago

>> More

Proven Thoroughbreds has joined forces with Aquis Farm to form Aquis Sino Proven Chinese Syndications.  This new syndication business will be focused on the emerging Chinese language speaking community  in Australia and abroad, particularly in China and Hong Kong.

“All the Chinese syndicate horses will be prepared by leading trainers in Australia," said Proven Thoroughbreds' Jamie Walter.

"They will be personally managed by myself and the Aquis Farm team to ensure this first experience of horse ownership for the Chinese will be of a high standard to hopefully increase the prospect of re-investment in the Australian Racing Industry over time. Whilst syndicate shares will be available to all, the underlying focus of this aspect of our business will be to attract initial interests from new players in the Chinese speaking community both here and abroad.”

Justin Fung, CEO of Aquis Farm, added: “There are some incredibly big players from China investing in our industry, however, they are like the microscopic tip of an iceberg and we want with this venture to attract the masses rather than the elite.”

The new venture will be purchasing yearlings this year beginning at this week's Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.
